I want to get an Aluminum radiator for my 89. I was looking at the Ford Racing Direct 79-93 replacement radiator they offer.

Has anyone bought this radiator and put it in their mustang?

One thing I don't like about it is that it has plastic tanks instead of alum tanks.


this one here - click on enlarge Pic it looks identical

i don't know the difference between ^^^

and this one Ford Racing M-8005-C03 - Ford Racing Aluminum Radiators - summitracing.com


I like this one too.

ive got one identical to the FR rad although its not FR and i paid 70$ for mine BRAND NEW from a wrecking yard that sells new parts. no probs whatsoever.

the plastic side tanks are no biggie i didnt want the plastic but for the price you cant do better. havnt had a problem yet. i think i still have a air bubble or two but its not rad related.

I think he means he hasn't had to flush the fluid or anything...I dunno.

Anyway, I have the fluidyne rad and I like it. It's probably a few years old and still looks new.

I think you'll be happy with pretty much any aluminum rad you pick; they all do the same thing anyway, just a different logo on it.

Which one the FR or the griffen?

Did it just bolt right in or did you have to cut anything?
Its the FR one. Mine just dropped right in. Took like an hour to remove and install
